Onsite and Offsite monitoring bring critical improvements to operational security
The key to successfully managing a mining operation for maximum efficiency while providing the safest conditions for workers and equipment is having the most accurate and actionable data available at all times. A humming information ecosystem within your site allows complete control over assets and operators, is easy to implement, and pays for itself over resource allocation efficiency and reduced risk of incident. Furthermore, a solution that integrates existing systems and equipment allows for rapid deployment and unification of all existing information systems into a single central communications infrastructure.
A complete solution allows stakeholders the ability to track and manage inbound and outbound vehicles containing personnel, shipments, and supplies. Considering most mining operations are conducted in remote and often under-developed regions of the world, the transit and delivery of yield is almost as difficult to secure as the site itself. This solution gives managers additional control and accountability for overall operations both on- and off-site.
Never a solution in search of a problem; for miners, by miners: GSE’s mining solutions have been developed by mining professionals with decades of experience in the field. Each solution has been crafted to suit the direct needs of mining operations management teams, and has been engineered explicitly to help managers achieve goals related to production efficiency and safety. Each product and provider has been hand-selected and field-tested to ensure performance, quality, and reliability.
L-band satellite transmission capabilities vary across different industries and sectors within those industries, but are most commonly geared toward solutions involving geo-tracking or sensory reporting at regular intervals. Because L-band technology operates at the lower end of the frequency spectrum, these smaller data packets travel more efficiently, allowing for real-time transmission and globally-supported satellite coverage.
Satellite technology is among the few equipment and facilities categories that gets constant attention, and the reasons for that are manifold. Primarily, it is quite normal for satellite technologies to have strong ROI, often because they can automate systems and processes that otherwise require extensive man hours and maintenance of existing equipment currently employed to perform the task. These cost savings add up quickly, and can easily justify the budget decision in a matter of a few short years.
Internet Of Things Creates Actionable Data
Perhaps impossible to ignore is everyone’s increasing obsession with Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, and how they can apply to one’s commercial sector, even in the most fringe of capacities. While it is certain that a large amount of the advancements in technology can have measurable and significant effects on efficiency, accountability, and reliability, it is also eventually going to be the case that a number of these “must-have innovations” will become decorative bells and whistles that fail to contribute sufficient return on investment. Making smart decisions about how to invest in these new technologies is critically important, especially in a sector like Mining, where safety is a considerably large factor.
Leverage Our Expertise For Your Business Growth
GSE’s team of engineers and solution architects are perfectly prepared to assist in the creation of a technology set that actually meets your individual needs by amalgamating only the tools that help you achieve the goals you have for improvement of processes and output. While GSE has the ability to work with all of the available bells and whistles mentioned above, we know that less is almost always more when it comes to business objectives, and we know how to get from your desired outcome to a lean solution set specifically designed to achieve that goal. GSE engineers also emphasize ease of use, integration with existing equipment and technology whenever possible, and streamlined, replicable implementations, with support.
Making smart decisions about which of these technologies is best for your operation can be extraordinarily difficult, especially because of the influx of availability, and the pressure to make allotments only for those enhancements that will have strong ROI. As a technology partner, GSE will work directly with you to outline the opportunities available to achieve your goals, and we always emphasize the use of existing equipment wherever possible, as the majority of our solutions integrate with technology that has been on the market for quite some time.
